    The TT600R (A6YCF) is the genuine kickstart only model.

    The buttons on the bars are:
    Left side: Lights, indicators and horn (red)
    Right side: Engine kill switch.

    Now on the other hand, this one (TT600RE) does have the e-start (but no kicker)...

    2003 TT600R / 2004 TT600RE
    Sad to say both models ceased production about that time. Next nearest thing is a DR650SE.
    That 200 would be about the weight of TT600 engine...

    Hi Tritwin,

    Great looking bike you have! Mine happens to be originally the same ;-)
    The Acerbis on front fork, do they sit on the original fork protector without any modifications? I would like to find the same.

    Good to know. Thanks, Acerbis located and ordered.

    This is the look of my teenage time dream (big thumper) on arrival day (leaking fork seal, worn out chain and sprockets, cables stuck etc.):

    TT600REfresh.JPG

    and today:

    TT600RE_R.JPG

    modifications so far are belgian Wilbers shock on back, greek Belgarda fork, polish R length side stand (= 280 mm travel), Batanga luggage rack, chinese levers, footrest and folding mirrors, slovenian tank. Still to come are gel seat (Poland & China). Truly international ;-)
    Target with this winter time modifications is a tour to Alps and gravel roads in July. If the borders are open? Otherwise, TET in Finland.

    I found my tank from eBay. I was not ready to pay 360€ and managed to find one cheaper. Off-the-road.de has them. They also have pannier rack’s but you don’t need one anymore. Mine is custom made to this bike since Batanga is a small company and they/he did not have a model. Had to drive to Latvia to get it done. Hand made :-)

    Looking good......I note you have a non standard extended / unvented front fender that looks like it would restrict a fair amount of flow over the head/ cylinder. Keep in mind these TTR's standard will run very hot oil temps if doing any sort of slow tracks or high speed running in hot weather. As I have found on mine, is easy to see 130/ 140C oil temps which is not good. I suspect is due to the poor air flow positioning of the oil tank in combination with the solid bash plate. My XT600 3TB running in the same conditions will run10-15C cooler, likely due to the oil in frame and no air flow restricting bash plate. If you are going to run the bike in hot temps I would get the shorter, vented style fender back on.
